Oh, sure they will be more than glad to "hook you up" at the other place of residence. They just don't tell you they will also make you pay for another Dish! While they asked you to leave the other at your old place. This is so the new owners may want to try the Dish TV out.
And at your end you pay for a new install and new dish on the outside. That is unless the previous people fell for the scam too.
I learned to install my own satelite systems so we don't get sucked into the install scam.

If they attach them to the roof they don't want to remove them because then they would have to repair the roof.

I've used the moving service with DISH 3 times and have had no problem at all.
Twice, the previous and the next user wanted Direct TV so there is a problem with all these extra dishes .
Saw where some people have painted them and turned them into birdbaths .

I didnt have any issue with them. after I moved I got a reinstall of an upgraded system at no charge. They installed it no charge as well.
My issue with all of them is they want to charge a premium for HD when in 3 months it will be standard... will they drop that fee then?

I also have never had to pay for a new dish with Dish network when we move (and we get two new dishes each time as we need one for locals)???? I have never had to pay any fees at all (just extend my contract)?

Are you thinking of digital that will replace analog?
That isn't the same thing as Hi Def.
